Closed-circuit television (CCTV), also known as video surveillance, is the use of video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place, on a limited set of monitors. It differs from broadcast television in that the signal is not openly transmitted, though it may employ point to point (P2P), point to multipoint (P2MP), or mesh wireless links. Though almost all video cameras fit this definition, the term is most often applied to those used for surveillance in areas that may need monitoring such as banks, casinos, airports, military installations, and convenience stores.
A closed circuit television, or CCTV, describes a system that captures and records video on a closed, connected system. This differs from broadcast television in that a CCTV system involves a direct cable or wireless connection between a camera, receiver and recording device, as opposed to a wireless signal publicly broadcast to multiple, properly attuned receivers. CCTV systems are used for surveillance purposes, to increase levels of safety and security.
- Systems are often implemented because they:-
- Deter theft.
- Reduce vandalism.
- Monitor high risk or secure areas.
- Ensure quality control.
- Decrease liabilities (ex. fraudulent injury claims).
- Increase safety for staff in facilities and parking areas.
- Provide evidence by recording from the earliest stages of break-in attempts.
- Confirm remote processes are running properly.
